    King James Bible - Proverbs 25:7

    For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

    World English Bible

    for it is better that it be said to you, "Come up here," than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince, whom your
    eyes have seen.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 25:7

    For it is better that it should be said to thee: Come up hither; than that thou shouldst be humbled before the prince.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For better it is that it be said to thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldst be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thy
    eyes have seen.

    Original Hebrew

    כי
    3588 טוב 2896 אמר 559 לך  עלה 5927  הנה 2008 מהשׁפילך 8213 לפני 6440 נדיב 5081 אשׁר 834 ראו 7200 עיניך׃ 5869

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:7

    porque mejor es que se te diga: Sube acá, que no que seas abajado delante del príncipe a quien han mirado tus ojos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 25:7

    Verse 7. Come up hither ] Our
    Lord refers to this, see Luke xiv. 8, and the notes there. Be humble; affect not high things; let those who are desperate climb dangerous precipices; keep thyself quiet, and thou shalt live at ease, and in peace. Hear the speech of a wise heathen on this subject: - Quid fuit, ut tutas agitaret Daedalus alas; Icarus immensas nomine signet aquas? Nempe quod hic alte, dimissus ille volabat. Nam pennas ambo nonne habuere suas? Crede mihi; bene qui latuit, bene vixit; et infra Fortunam debet quisque manere suam. Vive sine invidia; mollesque inglorius annos Exige: amicitias et tibi junge pares. OVID, Trist. lib. iii., El. 4, ver. 21.

    "Why was it that Daedalus winged his way safely, while Icarus his son fell, and gave name to the Icarian sea? Was it not because the son flew aloft, and the father skimmed the ground? For both were furnished with the same kind of wings. Take my word for it, that he who lives privately lives safely; and every one should live within his own income. Envy no man; pray for a quiet life, though it should not be dignified. Seek a friend, and associate with thy equals."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. For better [it is] that it be said unto thee, Come up hither , etc.] It is much more to thine honour and credit to seat thyself in a place rather beneath than above thee; which being observed by some of the officers at court, or by him whose business it is to look after such things, he will beckon or call to thee to come up to a higher and more honourable place: than that thou shouldest be put lower, in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen ; than that thou shouldest be thrust away with a severe rebuke for thy boldness and arrogance, in approaching too near the king’s person, and taking the place of some great man, which did not become thee, and be forced down to a lower place, to thy great mortification; and the more, as this will be in the presence of the prince thou hadst the curiosity of seeing, and the ambition of making thyself acceptable to, by a gay and splendid appearance; and now with great disgrace turned out of his presence, or at least driven to a great distance from him. Our Lord seems to refer to this passage, in ( Luke 14:8-10).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6, 7 -
    Religion teaches us humility and self-denial. He who has seen the glor of the Lord in Christ Jesus, will feel his own unworthiness.
